Asned Tembo is 22 years old. If she lived in America, she would be in college right now. Instead, she lives in Zambia. Her education ended after 9th grade, when her family could no longer afford to send her to school. Her dream is to be a nurse, but instead she is the woman of the house after her mother passed away. Asned’s father has a small welding business but does not work himself; his income is barely enough to support his 3 sons and Asned.
Asned heard about the RecycloCraftz project from her mother, who had been part of the project before she died. Asned took her place making bracelets, and the income she brings in helps meet basic needs such as paying for food, clothing, and the personal care products that every young woman needs. RecycloCraftz helps, but Asned’s dream of getting a high school diploma and going to nursing school are still sadly out of reach.
Pray for Asned to be able to finish high school and fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse.
